post steve jobs is one thing. but i think that they are doing fine. they did miss a bunch of quarters. where einhorn's really right is they are anti-shareholder friendly. i mean, if the ultimate thing that comes out on the proxy is we are against something that was proposed that is reasonable, shareholder friendly, that what does that say? what does the statement say? why isn't the dividend bigger? why isn't the buy back bigger? most companies would not tolerate the treasury stance of apple. they would just say it's not good enough. and i think einhorn's right on that. solution, all i can tell you is when you discuss with a company an idea and then you see a proxy, the proxy that your idea is wrong, given the fact that they have used cash, i don't know, intellectually, apple's position can't be defended. >> trying to head him off at the pass. >> right. right. >> doesn't it say that whatever their reason is for saving this money, they haven't communicated it effectively? >> thank you. >> right? >> yes. there must be a reason. >> but say it. say, okay, look, we are looking at developing
